Last two days.

The last two days have been a little uneventful.
Didn't get to the gym yesterday or today but did managed to go for a big walk last night, which was lovely. I love the simplicity of just walking along the street. Nothing to worry about, just listening to the traffic and the occasional bird. It really is a time for me to clear my mind.
I have been trying to track my eating habits a little more. I have noticed I am definitely able to eat a lot more since my unfil a little over a month ago so I need to to watch what I am putting in my mouth a little closer. I am an emotional eater! If the boys are stressing me out I always reach for bad stuff, be it chocolate, crisps, or what ever is at hand. I have even been known to put a spoon into the the nutella jar. Not a pretty sight I must say :) So I am trying my hardest to resist these urges, not with much success though, but I am trying so that is the first step.
Also I think I may have a small drinking problem. Not enough to be completely concerned but enough to know that most nights I am wanting a wine or two, and to indulge in this behaviour can lead to some serious health and non-weight loss issues. I have decided to only allow 3 wine nights a week. That might sound like a lot to some of you but for me it has been no problem having a glass or two with my husband each night after the boys go down.
So for the last couple of days I have been doing a little soul searching and rule setting. I would really like to get to goal by Christmas. It is only a measly 13 odd kg (28 pounds) so at just 1.3 kg a month I'm sure I can succeed. I just have to keep reminding myself that this is not a race and nor should it be.
Nite :)

Hello there

Well sorry for my absence of late. Nothing much has been going on. Since my unfill I have been at a stand still. I have not lost a single gram and I think a lot of it has to do with my lack of blogging. I've decided I need to post at least every second day, that way I am accountable for how I am treating my band.
I have been overeating and drinking way to much alcohol so the time has come to put my foot down and kick my self into gear. My exercise has been good though and I am still loving pump classes. I can feel myself getting stronger.

We just booked 15 days in Bali for Christmas so now I have a huge incentive to get to goal. My husband and I got married in Bali 10 years ago. I was 93 kg on the day of my wedding and although I felt beautiful I was also very sad to not be the slim woman I was when my DH and I met (62 kg) only 4 years earlier. Yes how did I manage to put on 31 kg in 4 years :(
So now I am determined to be fit and healthy for this trip to Bali and have the wonderful pool side pictures of me in my bathers that I have always dreamed of.
